Windows 10 Edition upgrade with KMS?

Recommended Posts


While testing the lock screen policy recently, I realised that it was N/A because my test device is running Windows 10 Pro.

Given that it was purchased by work, it's covered under the Campus Agreement to upgrade to the Education edition.

So, I could use the Edition Upgrade policy, but I'm a bit loathe to use the MAK key, given that the number of activations are limited, and on premise we have a KMS server.

I've hunted the Microsoft documentations, but I've only found one reference to using the KMS keys - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/edition-upgrade-configure-windows-10

But using the KMS key in itself doesn't seem to be enough; it needs to know where to activate (maybe with a PoSh script)?


My question is, has anyone used Edition Upgrade with a KMS key? Or is it worth pursuing at all?
